to the american people. this hour, joe biden is in virginia. his first stop of what's likely to be many as he fights to gain support for the administration's sweeping gun control plan proposed in the aftermath of the newtown shooting. and he brought some backup with him. joining the veep in richardson, janet napolitano and kathleen sebelius and tim kaine. biden's trip comes one day after senator dianne feinstein introduced her much-awaited ban on assault weapons. after biden's candid fireside chat on google plus. >> a shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun than the assault weapons in somebody's hands who doesn't know how to use it. even one who does know how to use it. it's harder to use an assault weapon than a shotgun. >> so as biden looks for outside support, the gop looking inward. today at their winter meeting, the rnc chair reince priebus expected to drop a truth bomb on his party. politico reporting he'll lay out his plan for republican renewal. one that will change the rules but not the party's principles. and louisiana governor bobby jindal dished out his tough lo

'm chris jansing. next hour, vice president joe biden will host the first event to kickstart public support for a new gun control agenda. proving that post-newtown push for gun legislation isn't fading. it's escalating. biden will hold a roundtable discussion. and then there's the bill introduced. it's the ban on assault weapons. but one of the key and most controversial legislative parts of the obama plan. lawmakers involved actj won't be easy to pass. >> the morn people don't stand up to the lies that are being said that we can't do anything about gun violence, who loses? >> columbine, virginia tech, aurora, tucson, oak creek. the common thread in these shootings is each gunman used a semiautomatic assault weapon or large capacity ammunition magazine. >> will it be hard? for sure. we owe it to our constituents and our country to try. >> feinstein's bill doesn't just ban assault weapons. it bans magazines that hold more than ten rounds, something the vice president focused on in a google chat. >> i am much less concerned, quite frankly, about what you would call an assault weapon than i am
of the morning. and vice-president joe biden taking his oath of office on the biden family bible. you saw that live on our show yesterday. he was joined by his family for the oath given by supreme court justice sonya sotomayor, the night before, the vice-president got a little ahead of himself. >> i'm proud to be president of the united states, but i am prouder to be-- >>. >> brian: proud to be the president of the united states. >> steve: did he correct himself? >> kind of, the vice-president making the gaffe at the iowa state society and iowa kicks off the campaign and many say that biden is strongly considering another run for president in 2016 and interestingly enough of the 100 people-- 120 people in attendance yesterday at the naval observatory, that mr. biden was sworn in, dick carputlin and-- >> i think he wants to run, but i think as much traction as dan quayle got. >> gretchen: and interesting too see how that hillary clinton would play out and that would mean that the president would endorse hillary clinton over joe biden. and we're looking at next four years and leads us to th
as well. >> ed, what was that about? >> it's hard to figure. >> and biden's going out -- >> killing it. >> week in, week out, joe biden is going out, making the deals that have got to be done. he's the mvp of the past six months. this is really sticking it to a guy that has been saying since 2009 he wants to run for president. >> it's hard to figure, if this was at the end of the administration, maybe it makes sense. but the president's going to need joe biden and need him all out for the next four years, no question. >> so what's going on? by the way, you love hillary. you love joe. we all do. >> we all do. >> this doesn't make any sense. >> i think down the road -- first of all, i do think that there's something about just saying, look, this was a great collaboration. we want to put an exclamation point on a great collaboration team of rivals. look, hillary's more popular than the president right now. the president might have had as much to gain on that as hillary did, number one. number two, i think that the president, down the road, could be the peacemaker, the person who comes in
remarks tonight from vice president biden at the commander in chief's ball. that is all due to happen roughly this hour. so you should stick with us. also, dan rather coming up. we'll be right back. with the spark cash card from capital one, olaf gets great rewards for his small business! pizza!

. you understood it was not just about a candidate. it was not just about joe biden or barack obama. this was about us, who we are as a nation, what values we cherish, how hard we're willing to fight to make sure those values live not just for today but for future generations. all of you here understood and were committed to the basic notion that when we put our shoulders to the wheel of history it moves. it moves. it moves forward. that's part of what we celebrate when we come together for inauguration. yesterday americans in all 50 states took part in a national day of service. tomorrow hundreds of thousands will join us in the national mall. what the inauguration reminds us of is the role we have as fellow citizens in promoting a common good even as we carry out our individual responsibilities. the sense there's something larger than ourselves that give shape and meaning to our lives. the theme of this year's inauguration is our people and our future. throughout my career what's always give me energy and inspiration and hope, what's allowed me to stand up when i've been knocked d
president joe dieden w -- biden sworn in by chief justice sotomayor. the first latina to ever swear in a vice president. what do we expect today? lots of celebration, pageantry and some historic firsts. dan lothian following the day's events. how does it begin, where does it go, how does it end? >> reporter: a very long day. the president will start off his day at the white house, waking up, working out in the private gym, having presidential daily briefing on national security issues and other issues as well. and sit down for breakfast with the family, and then around 8:45, they will head across the street to st. john's episcopal church, a church known as the president's church. and often -- the first family attended service there. a couple hours later, they will head up to the capitol for the swearing in ceremony where the president and vice president will take part in the swearing in. getting the oath there. this is a public ceremony, of course, privately yesterday was when the vice president and president had the oath administered and then later in the afternoon, the president,
the pressure on to make sure that we do get a vote. >> i want to play something that vice president joe biden said at this conference. take a listen. >> they come from a small percentage of the gun crimes in america. more people out there get shot with a glock that has cartridges that you can have magazines that have two, ten, 12, 15, 30 shells in it than from any assault weapon you see. >> it sounds like vice president biden's backing away from the ban on assault rifles. is there a chance that that measure was offered up as a political sacrificial lamb of sorts? is there a chance that a lot of folks knew they had no way of getting that through and they offered it up to be able to say, you know what? we didn't get everything that we wanted. well, i don't think the vice president is backing away at all from his support of the assault weapons ban, but there are three components and i applaud the president for wanting to pass some kind of comprehensive bill, but the main three components that we'd most like to see is the assault weapons ban and the elimination of the multi-round gun clips that h
them care enough about it that they will actually vote on it. >> considering joe biden, susan, has been leading the charge on gun control, i want to play one more clip from his google chat. he was asked if an assault weapons ban would -- >> a shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun than the assault weapons in somebody's hands who doesn't know how to use it. even one who does know how to use it. you know. it's harder to use an assault weapon and hit something than it is a shotgun. you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells. >> this seems to be part of the strategy. sort of common sense. also things like we've heard supporters say you don't need an assault rifle to shoot a duck. you need 30 shots from a magazine to kill a deer you probably shouldn't be out there hunting. what's the messaging and how important is the messaging? >> the messaging is important and we certainly see vice president biden out there. and the president, too. the white house says the president will be making speeches doing some trips that relate to this measure but the
president biden and democrats in congress are making one thing loud and clear. >> the bill protects hunters and sportsmen by protecting 2,200 specifically named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes. they are by make and model exempted from the legislature. >> reporter: the board is to get hunters onboard early by making sure their guns are safe. >> none of us want to take away the hunting rifle that uncle tommy gave you when you were 14 years old. we don't want to dothat. >> reporter: seen by some pro-gun rights activist a strategy to splinter the nra constituency and persuade members of congress from pro gun parts of the country to sign on. >> the ability of a member, particularly one struggling with what they think of difficult, as difficult politics back home, the ability of that member to go home and have that factually based conversation with people in the audience who may start off angry but get them to feel better when they know their gun and their shooting buddy's gun are protected makes a big difference. >> reporter: here's the problem. for the growing number of sport shoo
the bidens. i can't stop loving you >> there was also a special performance by mexico's hottest rock band. i'm here with mana, winners of multiple grammys and latin grammys. so alex, let me ask you, you supported president obama in his re-election this year. so many hispanic americans came out for him. why do you that i happened? >> well, it's very easy. you know, obama and the democrats have the best option for the latinos. immigration reform is on the table. the dream act. so, you know, the latinos here in the united states are so powerful and their voice needs to be heard. they need to be treated as first class citizens. >> reporter: in addition to celebrities, campaign volunteers came from around the country. kelly jacobs traveled from mississippi, literally, wearing her support. how many sequins are on your dress? >> 4,000 total. >> reporter: and these are all done by hand? >> they're antique shield sequ n sequi sequins. >> reporter: a lot of work behind them and ahead if they are to help president obama deliver in the second term. but tonight, it was just time for a good party. >> i
with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i haven't made that decision. and i don't have to make that decision for a while. >> so are you ready to run against hillary clinton in 2016? >> i haven't made that judgment, and hillary hasn't made that judgment, but i can tell you what. everything that should be done over the next two years that i should be part of would have to be done whether i run or i don't run. if this administration is successful, whoever is running as a democrat's better positioned to win. if we're not successful, whoever runs as the nominee is going to be less likely to win. >> you know, mike allen, there are a few reasons why joe biden might not run. one of them that i can think of right off the top of my head is if a meteor crashes into the naval observatory, a la armageddon style, perhaps he wouldn't run. but we
. >> vice president joe biden yesterday countered with that rare and prized thing, logic. >> just as you don't have an individual right to go out and buy an f-15 if you are a billionaire with ordinance on it, just like you don't have a right to go buy an m-1 tank, just like you don't have a right to buy an automatic weapon, those judgments have been made that there are no societial -- reasonable societial justification or constitutional justification for owning that. >> right now the vice president is in virginia attend aing round table discussion on gun violence with homeland security secretary janet napolitano, and health and human southwests secretary. as a reminder, a new poll by the washington post and abc news finds 53% of americans support the gun safety measures proposed by president obama, and nearly six in ten voters support an assault weapons ban, including 45% of gun owning households. joining us now from washington is a survivor of the virginia tech shooting and assistant director of federal legislation for the brady campaign, colin goddard. colin, it is always great to see you.
out on gay marriage and only did because joe biden forced his hand. the same thing with gun control. newtown changes the landscape just like 9/11 changed the landscape. i wonder if the president didn't do two things that will cost him nothing, appeased his base knowing he has to compromise move moving forward and put the republicans now on guns and gay marriage and climate change in a position where they will apologioppose it, may win and will look older and more out of touch with younger voters. >> a speech outside washington all this appeal tom coming together and did it at the white house we are going to do this if you want to do this. i thought he was reaching out to american voters and saying, here's my agenda but i need you to come with me and make this happen. i thought in that respect it was an intensely political speech, you're right. there was none of the red states, blue states, purple state of 2009. there was much more of the ideal and he had even said he would give clean water to african countries, that was a change the world speech. this was far more practical, far mor
to get it all. the whole biden proposal. i hope the nra will realize that the american people want to see something done and it is not affecting the second amendment. they say a well-regulated militia. >> i was thinking about the gun debate alone -- [ applause ] that's a perfect example of how things have gone a wry. when he talks about second amendment and people can still own guns and protect themselves in their homes with a wide array of legal weapons, both hand guns and long rifles and shotguns as well. we are talking about a specific kind of weapon a military assault weapon. when the general lived his with those in his hands came out on "morning joe" and said they have noplace, they are designed to do one thing. kill people. the blogger went after him and said i have to have one of these when the government comes to knock down my door. >> the problem is that this whole mentality that the government is coming after us, it is true that the second amendment was written to protect the people from the government, but the reality is the government is not coming after
be better for the country, rather than just-- >> we've got to go, i can see joe biden, and i'm going to die and he's going to drill out any gold in my teeth. are you old enough to have gold in your teeth. >> sean: no, many i'm-- >> and liberty and-- >> i'm not against that. >> and in favor of growth, optimism and liberty, aggressively so. >> i'm with you. >> sean: i love a good fight. >> and it's freezing in here. >> sean: i'm sorry, i like it cold. you don't want me to sweat. that's all the time left this evening, thank you for being with us. let not your heart be troubled. greta is next to go on the record and we'll see you here tomorrow night. greta, take it away. >> tonight, the first big showdown of president obama's second term. it it just started with the g.o.p. insisting it's time for congress to finally do its job and you'll hear from senator rob portman and the news media telling president obama to go for the throat of the g.o.p. tonight he's fighting back and blaming his critics, all that and much more ahead. on the record starts right now. >> we should start with spending and de
ideologies. the question complicating sthings what happens the next several years? vice president joe biden has said, according to recent reports, intoxicated by the idea of a 2016 presidential run. hillary clinton, it's believed that she would be -- she'd be -- it would be hers effectively, democrats say. i mean, she would be the early front-runner and pretty much would clear the field if she's interested as well. we should note, as we have this conversation over my shoulder, the presidential reviewing stand, craig, is still standing up. i'm guessing your toes and fingers are still thawing out. we're 1,380 days away and yet the presidential talk has already begun. >> already started before the last election was over. nbc's peter alexander from the most famous address in america. thank you, good sir, do appreciate you. for more on what the road ahead could look like for the outgoing secretary of state, i'm joined now by kiki mcclain who served as a senior adviser for the 2008 hillary clinton for president campaign and also a senior partner and global head of public affairs at the porter nov
think she will. vice president biden will step aside and i think it will be bush versus clinton all over. >> i think biden is keeping showing the voters that he knows how to make government work. he can look very good in four years depending on how obama's second term goes and how much credit joe biden gets. if hillary clinton decides she can win this without going through a bitter primary then i think joe biden will probably step aside. the party wants hillary. >> as soon as she says she is running that clears the field. >> i think that is the case although it is a tough decisions for some of the young governors who want to get in this thing. hillary has proven herself on the battlefield. nobody wants to mess with her. >> i think if hillary, secretary clinton decided to run it is her turn. we will have the must read sunday with the big three. new prilosec otc wildberry is the same frequent heartburn treatment as prilosec otc. now with a fancy coating that gives you a burst of wildberry flavor. now why make a flavored heartburn pill? because this is america. and we don't just make things
, coming out of a heated primary. setting up hilary clinton four years from now? joe biden, hillary clinton. who will he endorse? >> people say thank you all the time, don't sit down and do a rare interview on "60 minutes. on ." >> i thought it was a good sendoff for hillary clinton. the last time i saw president obama do a joint interview, he was with michelle obama last time i saw hillary do a joint interview, she was with bill. >> what am i missing? >> not sure they are cynical. >> taking it at face value. the face value this is extraordinary. a president doesn't do a sit-down interview with a member of the cabinet. >> i think it helped her coming out of the benghazi hearings, number one. number two, hillary touched on something that i think people kind of laughed you off, the spouses take it harder, and that is a direct reference to bill clinton. bill came up. >> that's what she said. >> having been a spouse and a candidate, i think spouses take it much harder. you know, in a way, just as the president said, we're out there and responding minute by minute. and you don't have time to sit
-president biden called his meeting with the national rifle association last week productive, but they have -- they don't see it that way. representative jeff baker says he was only given five minutes to present the nra concerns. baker says that when he mentioned the need to fully enforce existing gun laws the vice-president said this, we simply don't have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody lies on the form, checks the wrong box or answers a question and accurately. virginia state lawmaker choosing what was probably one of the most asinine ways he could have to make a point about gun-control. delegate john morrissey saying the viejo gun laws are too lax. he pulled out an ak-47 on the floor of the state house yesterday. watch him. >> i brought an ak-47 with me. here it is. point it at the ceiling. unloaded. lou: his colleagues to my gasping with surprise, even shocked. one interrupted them to suggest that he take his thumb out of the trigger guard. his dad did not work by any measure. his bill to ban the sale of assault rifles and high-capacity magazines failed to pass from a subcom
-president biden closing of his first term with another of his gaps, shall we say. hours before he was sworn in for a second term over the weekend the vice-president give himself a promotion at the iowa state society inaugural ball. >> proud to be president of the united states, but i am prouder to be -- [applause] lou: he picks up three quickly. to you think he's really going to run? it's a safe bet that rapper lupe fiasco amply named will be performing at no more inaugural parties for this president. i know, there won't be any more. kicked off the state's last night after bashing the president's foreign policy. here is just a bit of what happened. ♪ lou: i thought that was a rather -- went on for more than 30 minutes. thirty minutes. what he said or how long he took to say it. lupe fiasco has made headlines before. not two years ago he called the present the biggest terrorist. is sort of makes you wonder why he was invited to begin with. i thought it was kind of a catchy tune. up next in a gas prices and the national debt of nearly doubled. more than 20 million people remain out of work.
